President Muhammadu Buhari said Nigeria would have been in a deeper mess had former President Jonathan won the last presidential election, reports DailyGlobeWatch.
The president said the humanitarian crisis that would have engulfed Nigeria would have been unimaginable. Nigerians, he said, would have been queuing up for food WHO at UN-assisted outlets.
Buhari criticized the manner his predecessor dipped hands into the country’s foreign reserves adding that if he had won and continued in that manner Nigeria would have long folded up as a nation.
While recounting his achievements so far, the president praised himself for not borrowing to pay workers’ salaries but has instead bailed out states which were unable to pay their workers’ salaries.
Recounting his achievements further since he took over power, he said his government has paid all subsidy arrears owed oil importers since Jonathan days.
Speaking further, the president said his government despite the ongoing crunch of oil prices, his administration has been able to maintain the amount of money in the nation’s foreign reserves, unlike Jonathan that crashed it with almost $10 billion in 7 months following a dwindling in oil prices during his tenure as president.
The president said it would be absurd, illogical and irrational for anyone to think his government is ‘useless’ and doing badly despite the fact that oil sells below the half price when Jonathan was in power.
